Cozy and comfortably furnished B&B with a delicious breakfast and evening appetizers included in the room charge. Natural landscaped grounds, lots of sitting areas and a few hammocks as well as whimsical sculptures and reflective spiritual icons dot the grounds. A hen house full of beautiful chickens provide fresh eggs for the morning's breakfast. Strawberry Creek runs behind the property... More

Stayed here 2 nights on an Amazon Local special. In fact, everyone we ate with at breakfast had come on some kind of promotion. The place is sort of Madonna Inn-ish with each room having it's own personality. We were in the San Jacinto room which had wood walls and was very charming. The one thing you have to be... More

Very comfortable, well-managed and spacious public areas. The breakfasts are fantastic and they even made me gluten-free options which were great. They guys who run it are very kind and attentive - really liked them a lot. Sitting in the lobby reading is very pleasant.

I bought an Amazon local voucher for my wife and i to spend our anniversary in Idylwild. Strawberry creek in is a really peaceful rustic bed and breakfest. We stayed in the San Jacento room. Nice small room, tiny shower/bathroom. The breakfest they serve is really good, all home made. I think this place is a fun, quirky spot in... More

We visited Idyllwild for the first time recently and stayed at Strawberry Inn on an Amazon Local coupon. We were very happy with the old house that has been turned into a lovely inn. It is amply decorated in an eclectic country style and the common room has many cozy places to sit with books and games available. There is... More

I read the reviews before I purchased a weekend here but I thought the people were just over reacting and maybe "needy". Not so, I was wrong they were right!! Wow, if you're going to run a B&B at least be somewhat nice and available!! I was excited the Maggie room was available so I purchased 2 nights. This is... More

Room was worn out yet clean. The common area interior was cluttered yet clean. The exterior grounds were lacking yet clean. The breakfast was tasty yet small portioned. No surprise I will search a better value, accommodations.

Idyllwild has always been rustic in its hotel accommodation in keeping with the outdoorsy character of the town---mostly little pine cabins and lodges made from wood. Strawberry Inn is a redwood shingled lodge with varied size guest rooms, nice trees, decks, a hammock, chickens in a classy coop, rustic benches and chairs, plenty of birds in the trees, and a...

We have been to Idyllwild several time and tried a new spot, Strawberry Creek Inn. I emailed Rodney several time and appreciated his response each time. We stayed in the Evergreen Room, nice and comfortable. You definitely felt like being in the mountains. Both breakfasts were very good. The lodge is old and could use some cleaning up. The innkeepers... More
